Subject: Was it cold at this show
Subject: This show is very sick
Jerry's voice is strong and everyone sounds amazing!
Subject: nice for an audience recording
Set 1 here is pretty stale. Jerry's voice was slowly going hoarse here (he always seemed to have trouble in January) and he forgets quite a few of the words. Nothing here really gels - it just kind of mopes along....
...*except* that Music Never Stopped set closer - I feel like that sleeping rabbit in that Wii game, suddenly perking up and wanting to dance - they really just disco the *hell* out of this song. You can skip this entire first set but don't skip over the closer!
Set 2 is why you are here. Shakedown charges out with that dance-energy they went into halftime with; the triptych Miracle > Bertha > GL saw a lot of play in this era and they do it fine here.
The Dark Star through Space is, of course, very special - they add a lot of psychedelic jangle to the breakdown and make this one not just memorable for its setlist inclusion. Check out, too, the dynamics between Bobby and Jer on Wharf Rat's solo section, too.
Again - 1st set is a snoozer. 2nd from MNS is just fantastic, a good companion piece to your 2/3/79 set II.
